    Charlie thinks he's a pretty normal guy, until someone breaks into his room one night and reveals that everything he's ever thought about anything is wrong.
    1. His parents are boring -- nope -- they're actually highly skilled computer hackers with a history of radical action
    2. He has no special talents -- nah -- he's been jacked up with the Atlas serum, making him near enough a super hero (minus the spandex)
    3. The world is basically a good and predictable place -- wrong again -- there's an evil corporation determined to bring on THE END OF THE WORLD... and kill him
    4. The person who broke into his room is weird -- OK, that one is true. But Daffodil (not her real name) has a bossy, all-powerful artificial intelligence attached to her brain stem which is bound to make anyone a little different.
    In this pacey, ironic thriller, brilliant dialogue meets slapstick fight scenes, in a teen version of Christopher Brookmyre, and the question of who's controlling whom is startlingly, hilariously and constantly revised.
